'My Name is Khan' Gets an Attack From Hindu Extremists


After revealing his disappointment with India's snub of Pakistani cricketers, Shahrukh Khan has his movie targeted by Hindu extremists.

Mumbai, India cinemas showing Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan's new movie were targeted by Hindu extremists over the weekend following the actor's recent comments about his country's snub of Pakistani cricketers. The movie star admitted he was dismayed by the fact Pakistani sportsmen would not be able to take part in the India Premier League 3 series - and Hindus took exception to his remarks.

Khan owns IPL team the Kolkata Knight Riders. Fundamentalists tore down posters and threw stones at cinemas showing "My Name is Khan" on Friday, February 12, as Hindu leaders called for a boycott of the film. Police were called in to guard more than 60 cinemas across the capital and outlying areas - to make sure angry extremists did not gain access to the film houses.

But the film, which is set in the U.S., was still a big hit, especially in America, where it took in $18 million over the weekend.
